With a passion for their communities and a constant drive to create a welcoming space for all, Sheffield climbers are going to be in for a real treat".

The 15,500 square foot centre will feature hundreds of brilliant climbing problems, plus a fitness area and a stellar café, serving an abundance of top-quality local food and drink.

It is all part of their mission to make the UK healthier, happier and better connected through indoor climbing. Ged MacDomhnaill, CEO of The Climbing Hangar is excited to fulfil a long-held ambition to set up shop in the climbing capital of the UK.

"I'm so stoked to be opening a Hangar in the heart of the UK climbing scene. It's a big moment for The Hangar. I can't wait to give everyone a warm Hangar welcome and bring our brand of irreverent psyche to Sheffield's climbers."

"Climbing culture lives on and off the mats, so our cafe is there to help you fuel or recover; to tell your latest climbing adventure story, or to meet up and shoot the breeze. With ethically sourced, local coffee, our own sourdough pizzas, fresh daily, healthy specials and of course, cake… we can feed your ambition or your family.  We don't mind either way."

Anyone got the inside scoop on where this will be located?

Sheffield is feeling pretty well catered for in terms of indoor climbing facilities, between the Works, The Foundry, The Depot, Awesome Walls and now this.

a peng cafe?

I thought it was a typo. Is it chinese?

From Collins Dictionary:

Means 'fit' or 'hot' or 'good-looking'. Can also be used to describe something you like, like food, clothing,etc. Also used to describe high grade weed (cannabis), "That boy is well peng." "This pizza is so nice, it tastes peng." "Your t-shirt is peng" "That's some peng weed"

A cafe that sells locally sourced coffee to boot!

Is this the one upside to climate change?

E2A: aside from the pedantry, I wish them good luck with the wall
